Re: English to Japanese Translations: Key Words

I have a text book, but it's not very useful, I'm curious as to what textbook it is, and what about it makes it not very useful. Just words that would be useful to know for everyday speech / etc. Just? Think about English. Of all the words you use every day, what words would YOU recommend to a begi...

Re: English to Japanese Translations: Key Words

I'm a beginner, however, I didn't want words pertaining to one specific topic, I just was looking for everyday words, that would be good to know. I have a text book, but it's not very useful, and I'm looking at getting something a little more difficult. I've learned all my katakana / hiragana, and I...

English to Japanese Translations: Key Words

Hey TJP.
I've been taking words in English, and using my Eng - Japanese dictionary, translating them, and then writing them down.
What are some good words to know in Japanese (post word in English)
I find this technique helps me retain whatever words I learn.

Re: DIABLO3!!!

... I don't get it, what happened to open? people just stopped playing or did it crash? Was it deleted.... ... Open didn't crash, or anything related to the servers. USEast is still perhaps the most active. However, since the patch 1.02, the number of players has been on a steady decline. This is b...

Re: DIABLO3!!!

Diablo 2 was a sick game. I'm kind of mad though for them releasing the new patch, thus sending my three level 90 charaters (Light sorc, doing 24K, Hdin doing 9K, Trapsin doing 5K) into the abyss that is non-ladder. Open died a long time ago, when the D2sPirate.dll file was released by Darksun, howe...

Re: English-Japanese Language Exchange

Don't take it hard. It is nothing personal :) BTW, what do you mean by teaching "genuine" English? I mean, it's my native tongue, not a secondary language. Most people who learn English and have spoken it for many years still get some things wrong, especially when using idioms, and also sometimes w...

Anyone know any decent grindcore, hardcore, or screamo Japanese bands?

Any help is appriciated. Thanks!

Note to all users: disregard this thread. Apparently, I'm full of fail.
I didn't catch that spelling error until just now. ><
Also, a note not to post threads while half awake..

Re: English-Japanese Lauguage Exchange

Canadian English is 99.99% identical to all other forms of English (British, American) with a few exceptions such as idioms and dialects. It's just as valid as any other form.

And no, we don't consider "eh" a word, or pronounce "about" like "aboot."

English-Japanese Lauguage Exchange

Hajimashite, Jonathan desu.
I'd like to offer my teachings as a native English speaker to anyone interested in learning English.
I'm looking for preferably a native Nihon-jin, so that they may learn genuine English, and I may better my Nihongo.

Please feel free to email me, or private message me.

I've been studying international-style Tae Kwon Do since the age of 5, and recently, I've done about 8 months in Hung Gar Kung Fu. I'm also looking at taking Kendo.

Hello to TJP

Hello everybody, would just like to say a quick hello to everyone here. My name's Jonathan, or Jon for short (I have no preference). I'm 16, and will be starting my second year of high-school in the fall (Grade 11). I've been trying to pick up Nihongo for a while now, but I have no pratical outlets ...
